  • I also recieved a text last night about winning 1,0000 dollar gift card, and since I did shop there last month I assumed this was a reality, here's the code 5555, whoever is doing the scam needs to get off thier but and get a job, they have too much time on thier hands!

  • I just got this same scam at 6am with the same code of #5555 for a $1000. Best Buy needs to something. This is going to make customer not want to use their goods. I for one would like to know how this hacker got my cell. The closes Best Buy is over 100 miles away form where I live.

  • I got this same text this morning...same code of 5555. What a shame that someone spends the time to try and scam those of us that are working. Keep up the good work of notifying people and remember "if it looks too good to be true, it USUALLY is".

  • I woke up yesterday and recieved the same text also, the text stated I had 24hrs to respond. You know there should be some way to stop people like this, I work in a place that would take care of them that way they can't scam people out of there money.

  • I got this email this morning , with the same code as every one else 5555 stating I had won a $1000 dollars. What looks good on the internet is always FAKE or you have to pay something for it.

  • Mine showed up this afternoon --- somebody above said they did not get a phone number. Mine has one (714) 616-6158. So, if you get a text from this number, be forewarned...
